ALTO Newsletter Summer 2022

Dear All, I hope you’re well.

The first post-pandemic high season is coming to an end and the latest news stories suggest that we can look forward to a busy marketing season in international education with face-to-face events this autumn.

The summer season was not without challenges and we would like to invite our members to join the association’s full day professional development and networking event on 5th September where you can discuss your experience with fellow leaders. The #ALTOcpd London2022 event is free of charge for 2 people/ member organisation, please register below.

Talking about face-to-face events, I look forward to seeing many of you at the ST Alphe UK workshop next week. ALTO won’t form a “village” from association members but you can look out for the ALTO info sheet on our members’ tables: 45 of them will be represented at the event.
I will sit at the ALTO table EX45 on the Upper floor, please find me on your meeting manager or come to my table for a chat, it will be great to catch up!

In this Newsletter:

  • Members’ event: #ALTOcpd London 5th September 2022
  • Welcome to new ALTO members in Q3
  • ALTO Trends Barometer – join the project and gain measurable insight

Best Practice Guidelines – stamp


As we reported earlier this year, the FELCA and IALC Boards have reviewed the ALTO Best Practice Guidelines and decided to recommend it to their members.

The aim of the ALTO Best Practice Guidelines is to create a framework for organisations within the international education industry, where each acknowledges and accepts their reciprocal commitments to work as true partners.
ALTO member associations BELTA and Italian in Italy also agreed to roll out the document to their members and we hope to get more support from industry associations during our meetings at the Alphe UK workshop next week.
If you are an ALTO member, please contact Reka for more details about the ALTO Best Practice Guidelines stamp.

#ALTOcpd conference Rome 2022

We absolutely love the #ALTOcpd conference Rome 2022 video and would like to share it with you again as we believe it explains really well what we do best. We’re growing and we want you to grow with us!
